Followership – the way to mission success


by 2nd Lt. Alexander Graboski 435th Construction and Training Squadron As a lieutenant, I often find myself in peculiar situations when it comes to leadership. “LTs” are required to be leaders, while at the same time soaking in all of the lessons provided to us by senior NCOs and senior officers. At times, we are called upon to make decisions in challenging situations. It is during these moments that we learn what qualities are necessary to be a good leader. At the same time, these situations become shining examples of an often overlooked, but important, trait of leadership — followership. It has been said that it is impossible to be a good leader without first learning to become a good follower. For this reason, young officers and enlisted members should strive to learn how to be a follower as early as possible. The military makes every effort to instill these qualities in Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen during basic military training programs. We are taught to follow simple orders and to rely on training cadre before making a single move. As followers, we learn the qualities of being reliable and loyal to a common cause. These are attributes that help achieve mission success by bringing

and Air Force Africa critical care airtransport team leader. “It is important that the team knows their equipment and the other people on the team and what roles they are good at.” The LRMC team first purchased its ECMO equipment in 2010, using it primarily to transport patients back from Afghanistan. This trip was the first opportunity for the SAMMC and LRMC ECMO teams to transport a patient such a far distance. “We have practiced this type of movement in short chunks,” Langdon said. “We anticipate what could happen and practice our responses, but there is more to consider while transporting someone this far.” The challenges increase for medical teams when a patient is in the aircraft for an extended period of time. “We could have equipment failure,

trustworthiness to the organization as a whole. I was fortunate enough to attend the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy for my commissioning program before entering the Air Force. My “plebe” year at school focused on teaching followership. As a plebe, I, along with my classmates, had to follow the orders and directions of the upper class cadre without question. By following commands and learning by example, the cadre taught us how to follow. In turn, this allowed us to develop our own leadership style by emulating these mentors and learning from their examples. From this, we identified what is good or poor leadership. As we advanced through school, the leadership requirements increased little by little. Good followership was awarded with small leadership responsibilities, which grew larger as we flourished. By the time we became first-class midshipmen, we had developed a strong leadership foundation by learning to follow those around us first. We were able to identify the good and bad attributes of a leader — lessons that would help us avoid the same mistakes when we took commands of our own. I fully realized the importance of followership when I arrived at Ramstein for my first duty assignment. Officers and senior enlisted

where we would then hand-crank the machine until we were able to trouble shoot and get the device running again,” Langdon said. “We have little control over the environment in the back of the aircraft; it could be hot or cold and sometimes dry, but we do our best to keep the patient as comfortable as possible.” This capability is a breakthrough on many levels for the medical field. “This is a huge milestone from technology application to team development to standing up ECMO capabilities both in Germany and San Antonio,” said Lt. Col. Jeremy Cannon, SAMMC chief of trauma and ECMO medical director. “The original vision was to maintain this capability for our combat wounded, but everyone in the (Department of Defense) community benefits.” This program not only touches the patient but their family as well. including insert or supplements, does not constitute endorsement by the DOD, the Department of the Air Force or the AdvantiPro GmbH of the products or the services advertised.

often think about being the picture-perfect supervisor or commander. Every leader makes mistakes. It is the leader who is a good follower who learns how to overcome their mistakes and improve their leadership, because they have followed and witnessed how other leaders improve in spite of failures. We are all a part of a team and strive to complete a mission. Each one of us has a different skill we can bring to the table. It is imperative that we take a step back and listen to the experienced subject matter experts around us when the time calls for exceptional followers. Every one of us is a follower. Even if we are the type of person who likes to be in charge, being a follower is just as important to the mission. Warren Bennis, an American scholar, organizational consultant and author of “On Becoming a Leader” stated: “In many ways, great followership is harder than leadership. It has more dangers and fewer rewards, and it must routinely be exercised with much more subtlety. But great followership has never been more important.” By being a good follower and learning from your leaders, you can become a better leader yourself, and ultimately ensure the overarching mission is accomplished.

“We’re excited that this technology is available for Soldiers and spouses alike and that they care as much for family members as they do for (active duty),” said the patient’s husband. “It makes me excited and happy that this capability is there and they’re willing to do it in such a quick fashion. We were thinking the transport (back to the U.S.) would take months, not days, for everything to happen.” Last year alone, the LRMC ECMO team made 18 trips to Afghanistan. Of those, six warriors were put on ECMO treatment prior to being taken back to Germany. One of the Air Force’s key capabilities is global reach, and this mission solidifies that concept. Both Zonies and Cannon said the idea is to create teams in Europe, the U.S. and in the Pacific so there is the ability to strategically move patients anywhere around the globe to the central

New traffic code gives 72-hour reprieve before towing vehicles by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The installation traffic code has changed recently to allow for up to 72 hours of parking at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center and Ramstein Enlisted Club before the vehicle is towed. Members will still receive a citation for overnight parking, but can rest assured their vehicle will still be in the same place they left it if retrieved within 72 hours. “The citation can even be appealed by the driver through his or her commander or first sergeant to the mission support group deputy commander for a decision,” said Capt. Ryan Natalini, 86th Security Forces Squadron operations officer. “We want to prevent any possibility of an alcohol-related incident and see our Ramstein members make the right decisions.” The Armed Forces Against Drunk Driving program is still available and utilizes vehicles from a local car dealership to help reduce any extra wear and tear on the volunteer’s vehicles. “We fully support the local AADD program and would like to see our Ramstein members get home safely without worrying about their vehicle getting towed away,” said Natalini. “Our goal is zero ARIs, and having such strong community ties helps our objective.” The change came to give people visiting and stationed at Ramstein and the local area the ability to leave their vehicle in a safe place if they are unable to drive after consuming alcohol or in the event the designated driver falls through. Any vehicle that remains stationary in the designated lots can be towed away at the 72-hour point at the owner’s expense. Additionally, if the vehicle’s owner cannot be identified, or force protection concerns are present, the vehicle can be towed at any time. To contact AADD, call 489-2233 or 0631-536-2233.

knew I had to help, because I didn’t see any medical people,” Cathleen said. She had served in the medical field prior to transitioning to contracting. As others moved the victim off the small village street, the NCOs rushed to the scene to help. Cathleen’s military medical training kicked in as she got to the accident victim, while her husband took control of the pedestrians and traffic to secure a safe scene. “When I first arrived, I thought of the worst-case scenarios,” she said. “I immediately began thinking head injuries, bleeding and fractures. I had no idea what to expect. I began taking control of the person’s medical needs. I checked him for major injuries and stayed with him until he was able

to contact his riding partners and medical paramedics were able to get to the scene.” The accident victim, whom the Fraziers did not know personally, was a U.S. Soldier and part of a 15-person organized bike ride. He sustained minor cuts to the face and bumps and bruises after running into a pole and being ejected from his bike. The Fraziers stayed with the victim until local authorities arrived on the scene. “We felt it was our duty to stay with him,” Cathleen said. “We are in a foreign country, and this was one of our own.” The patient was admitted to a local hospital and released two days later. “It was a good thing he was wearing all of his motorcycle gear, or else this situation could have been a lot worse,” she said.

AADD providing services to save lives • A person is driving under the influence if he/she operates, drives or is in physical control of a motor vehicle, watercraft or aircraft while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, inhalant, depressant, hallucinogen, stimulant or narcotic drug.

by Airman Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Armed Forces Against Drunk Driving provides Airmen with helpful information and a unique service that benefits the wingman initiative by utilizing their own privately owned vehicles to transport Airmen when their responsible plans fall through. The AADD program is a successful program that began in 2003 and has since saved more than 10,500 lives. The organization’s goal is to prevent accidents and even deaths caused by driving under the influence. The success is based on support from the KMC joint forces: Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Department of Defense civilians who devote their free time and fuel Friday and Saturday nights to provide rides for military members. AADD is not intended as a first-resort plan. Service members are encouraged to establish a game plan before heading out for the night, such as appointing a designated driver, bringing emergency cash for a cab or calling a sober friend for a ride. If all else fails, AADD is an option. When an individual calls AADD they are asked for their first name, whether they drive a standard or automatic and a possible contact number in case the AADD driver needs to reach them. AADD sends out a team of two; the first volunteer drives the caller’s vehicle, accompanied by the caller. The second volunteer follows the first car in for a smooth arrival to the caller’s destination and takes the fellow volunteer back to the call center. Friday and Saturday nights are busy, but when there are no calls AADD provides entertainment for the volunteers. The facility has movies, games and wireless Internet. It’s located on Kapaun Air Station on the second floor of Bldg. 2783, near vehicle registration and is open from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Anyone can

New commander, but mission endures for 10th AAMDC Story and photo by Staff Sgt. John Zumer 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command Public Affairs


Col. Gregory Brady, incoming commander of the 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, stands with Command Sgt. Maj. Harold Lincoln, the 10th AAMDC command sergeant major, as they observe a U.S. Army Europe band during a change of command ceremony July 10 at Rhine Ordnance Barracks. The event marked the beginning of Brady’s slated two year assignment as commander of the 10th AAMDC and featured the passing of leadership responsibilities to Brady by outgoing commander Col. Stephen Richmond.

unny skies, countless dignitaries and a marching band usually signify that a memorable gathering is in the works, and for the hundreds in attendance at Rhine Ordnance Barracks July 10, they weren’t disappointed. All the above ingredients combined to add plenty of pageantry and fanfare to a 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command change of command ceremony, paying tribute to a glorious past that’s helping to pave the way to a brighter future. Col. Gregory Brady assumed leadership of the 10th AAMDC from Col. Stephen Richmond during the morning ceremony presided over by Maj. Gen. Richard Longo, deputy commanding general of U.S. Army Europe. The significance of it all wasn’t lost on Brady, the new 10th AAMDC commander who made welcoming comments and thanked Richmond for his strong leadership of the “European Defender” missile command. For Brady, this new assignment marks not only another duty posting to Germany, but a chance to get reacquainted with the 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery, a subordinate unit of the 10th AAMDC.

More importantly, Brady thanked Richmond for what he leaves behind — a highly trained, deployment-tested unit that’s proven itself capable during multiple assignments in Turkey, Poland and Israel over the last two years. The 10th AAMDC provides command and control for U.S. European Command missile defense, working closely with NATO and other partner nations to provide security against ballistic missile threats. “You’ve set us up for success,” said Brady, who told his new Soldiers that he looks forward to serving alongside them as they tackle future challenges. Richmond used his remarks to not only say goodbye to the 10th AAMDC Soldiers, but also to the many people along the way who made his 27-year Army career so rewarding. “These Soldiers before me are the best our country has to offer,” he said, adding his

thanks for their assistance in making him a better officer with thought-provoking discussions and regular camaraderie. “Your enthusiasm and competence motivated me to do better, and I would gladly serve in any of your formations,” Richmond said. Of all the family members, spouses and other friends who make and have made uniformed service more enjoyable, however, Richmond was most appreciative toward a special person in attendance. “Marrying you was the best decision of my life,” he said to his wife, Tonia. The Richmonds are the parents of three adult children, one of whom attended the event and received a shell casing as a memento from the artillery salute used in the ceremony. Following the formal change-of-command ceremony, Soldiers of the command and other guests attended a luncheon reception welcoming the new commander, who earlier summed up his thoughts on his new assignment. “I consider it an honor and privilege to be your commander,” Brady said.

Teamwork helps power communications Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


eamwork comes in all shapes and sizes. In the Air Force, the principle of teamwork is amplified by the Airmen who take part in it. Members of the 1st Combat Communications Squadron can rapidly establish communications together at locations where methods previously didn’t exist. They can set up fully operational communication lines in just days and stick around to ensure it all functions properly. But, they wouldn’t be able to do it without their Airmen who specialize in power and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. “Without us there would be no power and (air conditioning units), which means the communications guys couldn’t do their job,” said Senior Airman Denis Reyes-Cruz, 1st CBCS electrician. “Without power you can’t do anything, and without the ACU there would be equipment malfunctions.”

Senior Airman Denis Reyes-Cruz, 1st Combat Communications Squadron electrician, performs a check on a generator during a training exercise July 10 on Ramstein. The exercise was held in order to ensure Airmen can perform the mission outside of a normal training environment.

This is Reyes-Cruz’s first assignment and being assigned to a combat communications squadron, he gets to see operations he wouldn’t normally be able to see in a typical civil engineer squadron. “This is my first assignment, and prior to being assigned to the 1st CBCS I haven’t done anything on this scale,” he said. “It’s a good experience

and I hope I get to see how everything comes together soon on this exercise.” The 1st CBCS recently had a weeklong exercise where its members got to experience setting up communications in an environment where they don’t normally train in. “We’re simulating our mission capabilities in a deployed environ-

ment,” Reyes-Cruz said. “I’m supplying them the power for the equipment using one generator. We use a generator that can power 30 live-in tents, even with the gear the members bring for themselves.” Without the civil engineer Airmen at the exercise, the communications Airmen’s efforts would likely be for nothing. “Without the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and power Airmen to help us with our equipment, we wouldn’t really be able to do our job,” said Airman 1st Class Thomas Hack, 1st Combat Communications Squadron radio frequency systems technician. “Even if we could get power for our equipment we would have issues with it overheating.” The three specialties work day in and day out to ensure communications are established and functioning for a deployed environment. “Our main job here is to support (the communications Airmen), making sure they have what they need to do the mission,” Reyes-Cruz said. “We do whatever we can to not fail, because if we fail, the mission fails.”

Army civilians earn top honors in public works field by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs A pair of Kaiserslautern-based Army civilians were recently honored for their professionalism in the public works field. Juan Diaz was named the Directorate of Public Works Headquarters Support Executive of the Year and Jesus Toyens the DPW Business Management Executive of the Year for the 2012 Army-level Directorate of Public Works Awards Program. Installation Management Command-Europe Commander Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter presented Toyens and Diaz with coins during his June visit to U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern. They have yet to receive the actual awards. Diaz has worked as a project manager in support of DPW for 18 years and currently serves as lead chief of the realignments section for IMCOM-E region, based at Sembach Kaserne. “I am very honored and proud to be the recipient

of this award. However, the credit goes to the team — all of the folks that I work with and have worked with during the past 18 years,” Diaz said. “I don’t do what I do without a good team. Senior leaders mentor me and give me the latitude to do well, and my peers and co-workers come together to pull off timely and successful projects.” Toyens currently serves as the chief of business operations and integration for the Kaiserslautern garrison. He is responsible for all resource management, work orders processing and execution, and the information technology systems at the DPW. He also supervises all DPW work coordination, scheduling and resource management. “(I was) happy and surprised. What this means to me is that this award shows you that we (have) a good team of professionals dedicated to this community,” Toyens said. “Despite the budget issues, furlough, hiring freeze and other concerns, we’re able to accomplish our mission, and this is due to our dedicated employees and their positive attitude.”

Bill Holz, U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s director of public works, praised both Diaz and Toyens for their ongoing efforts to support the DPW mission. The garrison’s DPW oversees community construction, maintenance, repair programs, billeting and barracks. “Juan, from Day One, has been working the transformation actions with us. I don’t even remember how many major headquarters have been relocated to our footprint with the closure of Mannheim and Heidelberg. He has served as the primary action officer here working transformation from the region for the strategic initiative group,” Holz said. “Without him I don’t think that transformation would have happened as well and as smooth as it did … he went above and beyond to take care of everything from A to Z.” Diaz worked closely with master planners, the Air Force Housing office and other agencies to personally assist relocating units and organizations. Holz said he is DPW’s “Swiss Army Knife,” a real “jack of all trades.”

Tech Expo returns to KMC by Rachel Kersey 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

The two-day summer 2013 Technology Exposition, hosted by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, finished Wednesday at the Ramstein Officers’ Club. More than 70 of the leading companies showcased the latest in 21st century technology. “The Tech Expo is a great way to show off what we do as AFCEA. The greatest technology of the future is happening right now,” said Staff Sgt. Stephen Basham, 693rd Intelligence

1st Sergeants’ Corner

Support Squadron project manager. Aside from exhibiting cutting-edge gadgets, the Tech Expo serves in helping the Air Force make financially prudent decisions while maintaining capabilities. “In the budget-constrained environment that we’re in right now, it’s critical that we understand what technologies are out there to help us do our job better,” said Col. Russell Smith, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing commander. More than 800 people attend each summer, said Julia Banks, National Conference Services Inc. Federal

Airmen are people Many years ago as a young staff sergeant, I found myself in a bit of legal trouble stemming from a drunk and disorderly violation. Since then, I have shared my story with many Airmen hoping they will not repeat the same behavior. I often tell these Airmen how my disregard for the standard resulted in a loss of promotion to technical sergeant, a suspended reduction to the rank of senior airman and a forfeiture of one month’s base pay. I explain how I not only embarrassed my squadron but my family, too. I also go deeper and discuss how my EPR rating reflected my conduct, plus I was not allowed to test for promotion the next year, did not receive a decoration upon PCS, and the first time I tested for master sergeant, I missed it by only three points (reference the previously mentioned EPR and decoration). I try to show them how the ramifications of disregarding our core values can have long-term adverse effects on our careers. I always end my story with how I overcame my internal adversity, reinvigorated my commitment to the Air Force and worked my way up to becoming a first sergeant. When I share this story of how discipline corrected my negative behavior, I rarely talk about how I was treated during my legal trouble. It was that experience that became the strongest catalyst for me to turn my life around. I provide this information not for sympathy, but rather to encourage supervisors to reflect on the way they treat their Airmen in desperate times of need. After getting in trouble, I was picked up from the police station by my supervisor, who spoke only one sentence to me during the ride home — this was

Events Division event manager. Each session, the vendors demonstrate available technology in encryption, tracking and analytics, cyber security and more. “We are coming here to the Tech Expo because, as global players in the satellite business, we have a lot of American government organizations who use ... our equipment ... ,” said Hans Duering, a broadcast vendor. “I think we’re here for the same reason most people are here: because technology is changing so quickly in the communications field,” said Tony Keyser, another vender. “Even now,

the first sign that I was alone. The following weeks were filled with me being unaware of what leadership was going to do to me. The stressors of waiting and not knowing were taking a mental toll on me. Specifically, the fear of losing a stripe or getting kicked out of the service constantly filled my mind. Through it all, leadership never checked on my well-being, and I felt like I had no supervisor I could turn to for help. This lack of care continued during my Article 15 process, where I did not even receive adequate explanations of what was going on from my first sergeant. Instead, I was just told to “Sign here” and contact the Area Defense Council before being sent on my way. Ironically, it was then, after the whole ordeal of negative experiences, that I decided I wanted to be a first sergeant. Do not confuse what I am saying. The punishment I received was fair and just. What was unfair was that my leaders forgot I am a person. When our Airmen get in trouble, we must remember they are still people. We are not robots that strictly focus on our obligation to utilize the scale of discipline while simultaneously ignoring what our troubled Airmen are going through. Rather, we can be stern with our Airmen while also caring for them. Our Airmen are under our charge. Their wellbeing, safety, security and training belong to us — regardless of their behavior. When you are busy putting the final touches on those letters of reprimand, ask yourself how your Airmen will handle receiving one. Then, after they receive it, take the time to find out how they are coping with the situation and provide them help if needed. Before you pick up your Airmen from the police station, take a moment to reflect on the type of

every year it changes dramatically — how you can communicate, how you can do it better, faster, and more cost effectively. We need to keep the technology refreshed and keep it in front of our users so they can see what’s coming next and plan for the future.” The biannual Tech Expo also boasts a wealth of knowledge that will prove invaluable in the years to come, Banks said. “I think there’s a real need for it,” Banks said. “There are a lot of decision makers here, so when they have a budget, they can make educated decisions. It’s awesome.”

person you want to be when you get there. Do you want to be the robot that arrives with no support for the Airmen’s welfare? If so, you would essentially become a taxi driver. Or, do you want to be the leader who shows up ready to dig deeper into these Airmen’s lives, making sure that not only are they OK, but their families are OK, too? If you are scared to talk to your Airmen for fear your discussions may incriminate them further, then do not talk about their alleged offense. Besides, your main reason for being there is to assess your Airmen’s well-being and ensure they know, regardless of what they are going through, they can lean on you if they need help. In all situations, try to understand that although your Airmen allegedly committed a crime, you may be the only person they feel comfortable opening up to. Realize that our Airmen are probably scared and confused and feel trapped. Your concern and care for them can make a positive difference in their lives. As a first sergeant, I have encountered many supervisors who are fired up about enforcing discipline, and rightfully so, as they are trying to do the right thing to correct our Airmen. I simply want to remind us that fixing Airmen is a package deal that not only includes discipline, but sometimes a metaphorical hand on the shoulder and a push in the right direction. Sometimes, that hand on the shoulder comes from us. Other times, we need to get mental health, a chaplain or other professionals involved. Airmen are people, even when they disappoint us. It is in those times of disappointment they often need us the most. (by Master Sgt. Dathan T. Hayes, 86th Operations Group first sergeant)

Active shooter training The 86th Security Forces Squadron conducts active shooter training July 11 at Ramstein Middle School. An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people, most often in populated areas. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. In some cases, active shooters use improvised explosive devices to create additional victims and to impede first responders. The training created a realistic environment for first responders to react and secure threats.

Remembering the fallen Epinal American Cemetery and Memorial Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs DINOZÉ, France — Recently, Brig. Gen. Paul M. Benenati, the 21st Theater Sustainment Command deputy commanding general, visited a small cemetery at the foothills of the Vosges Mountains. The Epinal American Cemetery and Memorial houses the remains of 5,255 fallen U.S. Soldiers and is considered a beautiful tribute to the warriors laid to rest there. After his visit, Benenati remarked that this unique landmark overlooking the Moselle River was an under-noticed burial site for Soldiers killed during World War II. Epinal was liberated from the German army on Sept. 23, 1944, by the U.S. 7th Army and began receiving and burying the remains of American and German soldiers 15 days later. By the end of the war, there were 7,752 American Soldiers buried there and more than 6,000 Germans. The then active cemetery received new remains for burial on a near daily basis, said retired Command Sgt. Maj. Dwight “Andy” Anderson, the superintendent of Epinal American Cemetery and Memorial. “Back when the cemetery first opened and was completely active, there were bodies coming in all the time, and active exhumations and burials going on,” Anderson said. “There were also German prisoners of war working to

bury both U.S. and Germans. It definitely wasn’t the beautiful piece of land it is today.” Shortly after the cemetery’s inception, the mayor of Epinal requested that members of his community adopt graves in the cemetery and place flowers on them to honor the U.S. Soldiers who liberated their city. One of the first to respond to this call was a young girl by the name of Regine Ruyer from Brouvelieures, France. In spite of the spectacle of bodies being buried and exhumed, she went to the grave of Pfc. John Macedo, a Soldier assigned to the 36th Combat Engineer Regiment, every Thursday to place fresh flowers. “It was very important to me then to respect these Soldiers because we had just been liberated,” Ruyer said. “I was 14 years old then, and every Thursday a friend of mine and I would come to the cemetery to pay our respects. After I adopted the grave, I got in touch with and corre-

sponded with Pfc. Macedo’s fiancee (Adeline Philipe) in America.” For 68 years, Ruyer continued to come to the same grave site every Thursday to place red, white and blue flowers on the grave even after Macedo’s fiancee passed away. During their correspondence, Philipe would send Ruyer greeting cards, cake batter and candy, all items that were difficult or impossible to find in post-war France. “Back then, this land was very rudimentary. The crosses were wooden, the ground was still shook up from the bombs, there was mud and water and bodies,” Ruyer said. “The colorful cards and letters gave me something beautiful to look at.” Since the end of the war, members of the French community continued to take care Don‘t let the world‘s noise keep you from hearing Jesus‘ voice.

Book club gets teens hooked!

Children at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s KMC Onstage perform an improvisational skit during a recent summer camp on Kleber Kaserne. At 3 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, community members are invited to watch original performances with children from the camp.

by Rachel Kersey 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he library on Ramstein hosts a Teen Book Club meeting once a month, giving teens a place to meet with others who share in the love of literature. “Teens and libraries belong together,” said Alison McKee, Ramstein public services librarian. “We love offering this program because it provides exciting and creative ways for teens to connect with the library and its resources. They’re able to read great books, meet new people, have interesting conversations, and create fun crafts and projects.” McKee searches bestsellers lists, Oprah’s Book Club, and many other types of reviews before she makes a list of potential titles for the club to decide on. She has a printout on the synopsis of each book and members vote on which selection or title they would like to read next, said Perla Hopkins, Ramstein library technician. They read from many different genres, including the latest sci-fi and fantasy, historical fiction, and classics. Currently, the club is reading “Mila 2.0,” a sci-fi novel by Debra Driza. The reading material is part of the Bookclub-in-a-Box program, which provides 10 copies of each novel as well as discussion questions, a reading guide and tips on hosting a successful book club. “I joined (the club) because I can see some of my friends during the summer and they tell us really good books,” said Sierrah Linza, a member. Sessions typically include six to 10 participants and it lasts one hour. In addition, many members are budding authors, and the club nurtures their potential. “We support their work by talking about the writing process and by being a sound board for ideas,” McKee said. “It is also great to see how the kids work together as a cheering section to encourage each other to keep going. We look forward to soon hosting local author Clare Dunkle who will lead the group in writing projects and talk about her experiences creating unique characters and intricate plots.” If you’re a teenage bookworm who’s looking for something to do this summer, check out the Teen Book Club from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the library conference center.

KMC Onstage, U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s community theater program run by the directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, has been looking forward to offering educational programs for young people, said Nate Records, KMC Onstage’s artistic director. “This camp kicks off our education program on KMC Onstage,” Records said. “Now, we’re looking to do things like this year-round.” The 17 campers, who range from ages 8 to 15, receive a wide array of skills needed for theater, from acting to technical aspects, Records said. During the two weeks, children learn set design, play writing and vocals lessons. They break up

the lessons with theater games. One morning they discussed “Commedia dell’arte,” a form of Italian theater that is the basis for everything from vaudeville, to the slapstick comedy of Adam Sandler films. The kids worked in groups to improvise a skit that showed people annoyed at a fly. “You can swat at the fly, jump on things,” said instructor Hannah Schweinfurt. “It’s about the characters reacting.” Corrine Senkbeil said that her children Kaden, 13, and Kennidy, 10, enjoy the opportunity to take part in community theater. They have been taking part in KMC Onstage since last November when they arrived in the area, inlcuding supporting the “Never Ending Story” performances. Theater is teaching them how to be in front of people, she said. Now, with everything from school projects to other presentations, they will have more confidence, Senkbeil said. Plus, acting is something that military children can

take with them when they move. “They are so excited, going on about what they got to do on stage,” Senkbeil said. “They love to act and sing. It’s wonderful to see them growing.” Upcoming programs may include classes for children at the Kaiserslautern Community Activities Center and Daenner Kaserne. Autumn and spring performances will include opportunities for children. If children are not interested in acting, there are also design and technical jobs they can do to participate the theater in other ways, Records said. The summer camp final performances, original plays based the Brothers Grimm fairly tales, will be held at 3 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The community is welcome to attend the performances at KMC Onstage, Bldg. 3232 on Kleber Kaserne. For more information on this and other KMC Onstage activities, call 0631-411-6626 or visit www. kaiserslautern.armymwr.com.

Smoke alarms save lives According to the National Fire Protection Association, 38 percent of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads very fast, and a working smoke alarm gives you advanced warning. More importantly, it gives you time to get out. It is recommended to install detectors on every level of your home along with inside and outside of sleeping areas. Now is the time to remember some of your home’s safety features: smoke

detectors, fire extinguishers, home evacuation plans and a list of emergency numbers. Remember, disabling a smoke alarm or removing the battery can be a deadly mistake.

Here are a few key tips to help you enhance your fire safety plan: • Test alarms at least monthly by pushing the test button. • If smoke alarms do not respond properly when tested, replace them immediately. • Base residents should contact housing maintenance at 06371-46-

39510 for replacements. • Off-base residents should notify their landlords to have the smoke detector replaced immediately. • Replace batteries in all smoke alarms at least once a year. • If the smoke alarm “chirps,” it’s warning you the battery is low and needs to be replaced right away. • Smoke alarms can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner without removing the smoke alarm’s cover. • Review your family’s fire escape plan. • Check and replace your fire

extinguisher if necessary.

Remember, disabling a smoke alarm or removing the battery can be a deadly mistake. For further information, contact the Kaiserslautern Military Community Fire Prevention office at 480-5940. On Landstuhl, Rhine Ordnance Barracks or Pulaski Barracks, you can call Army Fire Prevention at 493-4500. In case of a real emergency, dial 112.

Nanstein Castle sets the stage for



Big-band jazz, rock, blues, Dixieland and soul music will fascinate visitors at the European “BURG JAZZ” Music Festival July 27 and 28 at Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl. The Unnerhaus Culture Club, a non-profit organization, will sponsor its 16th anniversary jazz festival with high-quality world musicians inside the atmospheric courtyard of Nanstein Castle. The club expects visitors from the KMC, Germany and around Europe. The festival will kick off at 6 p.m. July 27 with the evening’s first top act: one of Europe’s best trio’s, the United Blues Experience. “The band is from Poland and Bavaria and presents an acoustic blues session with Europe’s best female mouth harp player, Miss Kossowska. Their theme is back to the roots of deep blues with a fascinating feeling and grooving spirit,” said Willi Ningelgen, a member of the Unnerhaus Culture Club. “The audience will be thrilled by their musical talent.” They will be followed by the German duo Making Blues. Ignaz Netzer (guitar) and Albert Koch (mouth harp) will go even further back to the roots of U.S. Southern States Blues. In Germany, Ignaz is considered the “Großmeister” of classic blues with a guitar style similar to John Lee Hooker, Lightning Hopkins, Muddy Waters and Johnny Guitar Watson. “Albert, our local hero from Kaiserslautern, is one of the best mouth harp players in Germany,” Ninglegen said. The next top act will be the Paris Washboard jazz quartet from Paris, known as one of the best groups in France. They present the finest New Orleans and Kansas City swing with hot-dance elements from the 1920s and 1930s and bring back the real prime time of great American traditional jazz music. The first day will come to a close with the local stars Smitty, Molli and Corinna around midnight in the Castle Battery Tower. On July 28, the festival will continue at noon with the Dixieland jazz group Haufe Leit. The group had been invited to the traditional New Orleans City “French Quarter” festival, where only the best Dixie jazz actors are authorized to play. They will be followed by the most fascinating jazz newcomers of the year in Germany, the Marco Marchi and The Mojo Workers, who will present acoustic blues, ragtime, boogie and early jazz. They will be followed by the day’s top act Les Haricot Rouge from France. “They are as famous as pop stars in their homeland France, and they can be described as the enemies of sorrow and the lost property office of happiness,” Ningelgen said. The festival will end around 6 p.m. Tickets will be available at the entrance to the castle. However, take the chance and get a much cheaper ticket in advance at the healthy food store Hackler (call 06371-71549) or at the bookstore Boehm at the Landstuhl train station (call 06371-2742 or visit www. unnerhaus-kulturclub.de/burgjazz). Advance tickets for single days are much cheaper than daily tickets. An advance ticket for both days is €30. Children under 12 are admitted free. Parking is in easy walking distance to the castle. Food and beverages will be served, and the castle location is safe. The Culture Club is a non-profit organization and proceeds are only being used for cultural events.

Pacific Rim (PG-13) — When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea, a war begins that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon is devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, that are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee, who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s
